Iris Ann Russell West-Allen

Search for 'Iris Ann Russell West-Allen' on Amazon

A reporter by profession, her career is not nearly so well-documented as the DCU's pre-eminent reporter, Lois Lane. Indeed, her profession was largely de-emphasized in favor of showing her in a more domestic light. Perhaps in keeping with her husband's "Eisenhower Republicanism", she's best known simply for her family connections: girlfriend, then wife, of Barry Allen, the Flash (02); aunt of Wally West, the Flash (03); daughter of Eric and Fran Russell; adopted Daughter of Professor Ira West. Survived her husband by several years, but is currently dead in the 2005 DCU.

This is not to imply her journey is an unimportant one. Many comic scholars find the portrayal of the marriage of Barry and Iris Allen to be one of the most realistic, and at times genuinely touching, of any superhero-human relationships. But it is, nevertheless, fairly conventional.
